All profits will support the Barb Smith Suicide Resource & Response Network's mission to prevent suicide through education and resources, and to support those impacted by suicide. Our Network offers suicide prevention and aftercare trainings for the community to help create a safety network using multi-tiered trainings. We will continue to care for those who have been impacted by suicide and those with lived experience. We connect persons struggling with their own mental health, suicidal thoughts and those impacted by suicide with organizations throughout the community.
Together, we can create suicide-safer communities.
